NLP is a science known as Neuro-Linguistic Programming. The word "Neuro" refers to an understanding of the brain and it's functioning. "Linguistic" relates to the communication aspects (both verbal and non-verbal) of our information processing. "Programming" is the behavioural and thinking patterns we all go through. There is a relationship between perceptions, thinking and behaviour that is neuro-linguistic in nature which directly influences our nervous system. The relationship is operating all the time, no matter what we are doing, and it can be studied by exploring our internal or subjective experience. Our ability to do anything in life is based upon on, our ability to direct our nervous system. In short, NLP it is the science of how to run your brain in an optimal way to produce the results you desire.

NLP is a set of models of how communication impacts and is impacted by subjective experience. Much of early NLP was based on the work of Virginia Satir, a family therapist; Fritz Perls, founder of Gestalt therapy; Gregory Bateson, anthropologist; and Milton Erickson, hypnotist. It was Erickson's work that formed the foundation for a lot of NLP, thus the tight connection with hypnosis.

NLP has several techniques for diagnosing and intervening in certain situations. They have a phobia cure, a way to remove past traumas, ways to identify and integrate conflicting belief systems that keep you from doing things you want, etc.
